California teen Anita Minteer (Drew Barrymore) struggles in the face of an absentee mother, her mom's abusive boyfriend, Rooney (Joe Dallesandro), and a lack of respect from her classmates. This all changes when a pen-pal school project connects her with convict Howard (James LeGros). Anita secures Howard's parole and violently squares off against Rooney after he rapes her. Soon enough, the gun-crazy teen is on the run with Howard, with his parole officer (Michael Ironside) in pursuit.
